What does the Inspector General SEC?
AIG sold billions of dollars in insurance for mortgage-backed securities; Lehman Brothers and Bear Stearns traded in highly questionable, risky commodities, ultimately leading to their collapses; and of course, Bernie Madoff swindled billions in fraudulent trades. What do these trademarks of the current global recession have in common: A fundamental lack in oversight, which is where the Securities and Exchange Commission comes in.
